I've been using the DVT Eclipse IDE for a few years now, in three different companies. DVT saves substantial time in my daily workload, so I am a big fan of the tool. I used it for both UVM verification and RTL design. The bigger the project, the bigger the savings.

DVT is an editor, parser, compiler, and checker in one tool. The navigation features include the ability to follow class inheritance and a type-based search and replace. The parser is good - it even found errors in the UVM standard library!

The DVT is often incorrectly compared to the regex-based editors, but it can do more than these tools are capable of. While the DVT cannot replace "the big three" (Cadence, Synopsys, Mentor), it complements them very well. AMIQ support is prompt and competent.
